Jerome Osborn Set To Go Trial In August


A man accused of shooting a South Bend Police Officer will head to trial in August.

73-year-old Jerome Osborn faces two felony counts of battery with a deadly weapon.

The shooting happened in front of Osborn's South Bend home last month.

Police were on a routine investigation when Osborn allegedly shot at the officers.

The bullet grazed Corporal Kelly Waite's head.

Osborn says it is all a misunderstanding and that he lives in a bad neighborhood and was trying to protect himself.

In court Wednesday Osborn was given a trial date of August 27th.
